What is a VeinViewer?
The VeinViewer is intended to image subcutaneous blood patterns on the surface of the skin. The projected image pattern is used to demonstrate intravenous (IV) fluids displacing blood during IV flushes. The projected blood patterns may be interpreted by the health care team to determine intravascular or interstitial blood patterns.
The VeinViewer will minimize stick attempts, eliminating unnecessary pain and anxiety for our NEO Kids receiving treatment. It will create a more positive experience. The veins in babies and children are smaller and poorly supported by surrounding soft tissue, making it more challenging to locate a vein for cannulation in comparison with adults. The pain and trauma associated with multiple IV access attempts is often a source of anxiety among children and parents, especially those with recurrent hospital admissions. The VeinViewer will allow the health care team to visualize the most suitable vein for cannulation to start an IV successfully and minimize needle sticks attempts.
